This report provides evidences about the percieved challenges of implementing Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) in new housing developments as a means of managing surface water.  It juxtaposes the rarely heard perspective of speculative housing developers (Section 1) with the views of those seeking to promote higher quality sustainable drainage across our urban landscapes (Section 2).  Taken together, these commentaries provide an interesting window on the opportunities and challenges of better managing our surface water.
